BBC football ‘pundit’ Mark Lawrenson has had his say on who he thinks will win the Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.

Tottenham come into the match having not lost a league match in 2018, a run that spans 16 matches.  Ironically, our last league defeat was the disappointing 4-1 result suffered at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s side on December 16th.

City on the other hand, albeit with one hand on the title have lost their last three matches, which includes a Champions League exit and a wasted opportunity to clinch the title at near neighbours Manchester United.

Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his players to continue their rich vein of form as we continue to look to cement our place in the top four and more importantly, a third successive Champions League campaign.

Lawro told BBC Sport Online: “Tottenham were not having a good spell when they got hammered 4-1 by City earlier in the season, but things are very different now.

“I think City would take a draw after the week they have had. That will delay the title party a little longer, but they are still going to win the league – it is just a matter of time.

“Lawro’s prediction: 1-1.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. The same Lawro that has barely EVER predicted a Spurs win against any of our rivals, whether
    home or away, over recent years. And getting it wrong more often than not.

  2. Man City will be desperate to win after their last week but Spurs is not the team they would want to meet. I’ve been watching Spurs since the 50s and this is the best all round side we have had in my humble opinion. So I’m going for a Spurs win

  3. The title party will be delayed regardless. They can’t win the league tomoz whatever the result. In spite of its size, Lawro hasn’t got a nose for facts.
